C Where were you when the world stopped turning,
G C On that September day?
CWere you in the Yard with your wife and children,
G COr working on some stage in L.A?
FDid you stand there in shock
CAt the sight of that black smoke
F CRising against that blue sky?
FDid you shout out in anger
CIn fear for your neighbor,
Am F GOr did you just sit down and cry?
CDid you weep for the children, they lost their dear loved ones,
G CAnd pray for the ones who don't know?
CDid you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
G CAnd sob for the ones left below?
FDid you burst out with pride
CFor the Red, White, and Blue
FAnd the heroes who died
Cjust doing what they do?
F CDid you look up to heaven for some kind of answer,
Am F GAnd look at your self and what really matters?
